Dear Friends of the Seaholm Residences:
In just a few short days, the holiday season will officially kick-off with the arrival of the time-honored American celebration of Thanksgiving. Whether you have a long-standing ritual of whipping up your own Thanksgiving masterpiece, or you prefer to let a local chef wow you with their culinary delights, the Seaholm Residences will offer you a chance to carry on your very own tradition – or maybe even start a new one.
If you prefer to outsource the cooking, you can order a full, fresh, organic Thanksgiving meal from Whole Foods, and travel to pick it up and be back at your place within minutes! There are also a whole slew of delicious restaurants in the neighborhood that you can take-out or dine-in to enjoy your holiday meal, such as 24 Diner, Crú, Russia House, TRIO, Trace, and Sullivan’s to name a few. But let’s be honest: with that cozy, warm and eclectic Seaholm condo, why would you want to eat anywhere but home.
If you’re the family chef, you’ll have Trader Joe’s a stones throw from your condo, so you’re guaranteed to never forget to pick-up the right ingredients for your recipes. You might even find the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving staples while finishing up your grocery shopping. It’s like having a second pantry and refrigerator right downstairs.
And let’s talk about cooking or dining in a Seaholm Residences luxury condo – just think about those views! Envision those breathtaking panoramic sites of downtown all around you, with your balcony door open to allow all that cool, crisp air to walk on in and remind you it’s fall after all.
You can even take a post-meal stroll around the one acre plaza, half an acre front yard, or jump on your favorite trail and start trekking along Lady Bird Lake, Shoal Creek, or on the streets of downtown to walk off that second or third round of pie.
We’re looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving in a Seaholm Residences condo! But until then, we wish you, your family and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration.
Mr. Kevin Burns

The Seaholm Residences team wants you to stay connected to all the developments in your future neighborhood, so we’ll keep you in the loop on the best of what’s planned in and around your new home:
Get to Know: Arro
Arro is the most recent addition to the ELM Restaurant Group, who have also worked their magic on downtown favorites 24 Diner and Easy Tiger. Arro brings something special to W. 6th, and ELM’s executive chef/partner, Andrew Curren, and his wife, pastry chef Mary Catherine Curren, lead this casual French restaurant. Client reviews of their culinary delights are generally preceded with “to die for”, and they’re currently in the running for Eater Austin’s “So Hot Right Now” and “Stone Cold Stunner” competitions. Stone Cold Stunner? Enough said!
With a dedication to local and organic ingredients, a wood-fired oven, bread baked fresh daily at Easy Tiger, two wine master wine sommeliers on hand, a small yet incredibly refined French wine list, and a cozy atmosphere that makes you feel at home the moment you walk through the door, a night out at Arro is not to be missed.
601 W. 6th St.
Austin, Texas 78701
Get to Know: Garrido’s Restaurant & Bar
Sometimes a simple margarita won’t cut it. Enter a fresh Watermelon-Jalapeño margarita, Cucumber Kiwi Martini, or Paloma and the whole world seems anew! Priding themselves on serving Mexican food rooted in traditional Mexican cooking mixed with a French technique, Garrido’s is a must for downtown dining.
Their patio is also one of the best in downtown, offering green, wooded views of Shoal Creek. Open for dinner Monday through Friday, and for brunch and dinner on the weekends.
360 Nueces & W. 3rd Street, on Shoal Creek
